Wordle is a game that develops players’ vocabulary. Every day a new five-letter word is assigned as the correct answer and other words must be guessed along the way.

There are always opportunities to search for words that match the letters that have already been discovered that day. Word lists are especially useful when you only know a few letters of the correct answer and are also a great way to learn new words.

If you’re struggling with the Wordle challenge after only discovering that the secret word has the letter ‘E’ in the fourth position, here are some five-letter words with ‘E’ as the fourth letter, sorted alphabetically.

All the words on this list are accepted by Wordle and will give you more clues as to which letters are present or not in the word of the day until you get it right. Another good tip to get it right as early as possible is to find which other vowels are present in the word of the day to narrow down your options. Beware of words that may have repeated letters and don’t forget to try words you already know first, since Wordle tends to choose more common words as the right answer.
